How has that been working out for Canada for the last few years?
Canada's losing because of its reticence to let our offense shine and obsessing over systems and defense. Mack and Drouin are ripping it up against players 1, 2 or 3 years older than them, yet they're not good enough to play in this tournament? Please.
It's not even like we're asking them to be go-to guys...that's what you have RNH, Strome and Scheifele for. They'll be very well insulated.
